Take a second and try to remember what you ate in your school cafeterias growing up.
Sad Tater Tots, sickly fried fish sticks, grossly sweet fried-apple sticks, who-knows-what-meat corn dogs and the like?
Yup. Me too, before I started bringing a lunch more often.
Then take a look at this spring chef's menu for School District 11.
Holy crap, right?
That's like ... real food.
Actually, it's just good food.
All I can say is that I wish it was around when I was a little monster.
That is all on that subject.
But one more tidbit for today: the welcome announcement of yet another area CSA program, this on the heels of Pikes Peak Urban Gardens' highly in-demand new salad-sprout shares (89 on the wait list at last count) and Grant Family Farms' truly sad situation.
The Arkansas Valley Organic Growers (AVOG) is launching a unique multi-farm, 25-week CSA for 2013.
Shares are limited to 250, so I wouldn't wait much longer than reading this to book if you're interested, because these will likely go quickly.
